Geekity Geekity Geeks

This week's random link/music video is completely awesome. It's a flash video for Geeks in Love by Lemon Demon. The more you watch it the more you notice, and if you're a geek you'll find plenty of it completely hilarious. I love it. There are so many little jokes and things I could point out about this video, but I'll let you find them for yourself.

Watch it! Now! I command you!!!

PS- can you spy the Subliminal Massage?

The Book Tag

1. Grab your nearest book.

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

Here's mine:
And for him it was different- the more he won, the unhappier he became. But though he sometimes missed questions whose answers he knew, he still won the contests easily, gaining admission to bigger contests with bigger prizes, until at last his parents were perfectly dazzled at the prospect of fortune, and Sticky was perfectly exhausted. Despite complaining and even begging, however, he couldn't persuade them to let him stop.
- The Mysterious Benedict Society, Trenton Lee Stewart

I invite anyone to join in if they want!

A Grand(ish) Unveiling!!

I did the The Band Meme, not because I was tagged, but because I wanted to. (Miracle of miracles, I actually wanted a meme!) Here's what you do:
1. Go here. The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
2. Them click this.
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
3. Finally go to this link.
The third picture is your album cover.
4. Use your graphics program of choice to put them together into a respectable album cover and you’re finished.

Presenting, for the first time ever, my new-release album cover:
Band Name: Boulge*
Album Title: know where things are.**
Picture: the shoes with the happy faces drawn on them, titled happy feet by the taker, which is very cute.

I, being the curious music geek I am, wonder what you all think my music off this album would sound like. I'd like to hear your ideas before I tell you what I imagine "know where things are." to sound like.

*a hamlet in England, in case you were wondering. Yeah, like Bulge, but with an O. That's important.
** I went all minimalist and didn't capitalize anything. This is an ironic title for me to get, because I typically don't.
Now playing: Ladytron-- Seventeen
that was me again, hehe.

(enjoy the craptastic alien abduction concert corny fighting plus crappy animation video for this song)

I feel the need to announce this. You know that wildly popular (kind of carppy, now that I hear it again) song, Blue by Eiffel 65? I misheard some lyrics in it. I had never looked up the lyrics to it, ever, and I got a shock when I did. You know that little rap part in the middle? This part:
I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the color of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my corvette, it's standing outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

Well, prepare yourself for my version-until-five-minutes-ago.
I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the color I vomit and I wear it. (Ew, yuck, blarg, gee-ross!)
Blue are the streets and now the trees are blue. (minor mix-up here)
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around.
Blue is my corvette, its engine on fire (YOW! Lay off on the starter fluid, buddy.)
Blue are the words I sing when I think. (If singing helps you think, I guess...)
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

Now playing: Of Montreal - Lysergic Bliss
(That was actually me, I changed it to what I'm listening to on internet radio since it doesn't work with that)

A Positively Pointless Post

I think I should post something.

I haven't in a while.


Oh! I've got it!

Wait... I forgot.

Oh well.

I'm alive. I'm still here. I still exist. Just in case you were wondering.

And I promise I'll have a real post soon.

Random Tired Thought at 12:12 AM

Don't forget to leave a contrail as you go up. It makes things more interesting for the rest of us.

(Well, I didn't promise it would make sense.)
